At the end of the meeting, Volodin called to counteract "the US policy of sanctions " or embargoes against countries such as Russia , Cuba , China, Iran or Turkey.

"Not only Cuba and Russia , but also China, Iran, Turkey and many other countries disadvantaged by the US face these sanctions, the US uses them as a political tool," warned the Russian politician.

There is no doubt that the policy of sanctions is something to which we must all oppose, because it contravenes international norms, which we believe must exist in our multipolar world. "Only the Security Council (of the UN) has the power to make decisions (on the imposition of sanctions)," Volodin said.
